About APBEN

The APBEN Congress 2023, organized by the Asia Pacific Bioethics Education Network (APBEN) and St. Luke's Medical Center, Philippines, aims to gather healthcare practitioners, educators, researchers, students, and patients to discuss and exchange their insights and experiences in bioethics education.

With a focus on issues relevant to Asia Pacific, #APBEN 2023 aims to explore developments in bioethics education and research within healthcare contexts. An interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to bioethics will bring together perspectives from various fields.

The conference is expected to encourage a culture of ethical reflection and practice in healthcare, emphasizing patient-centered care, healthcare quality and safety, and social justice. Networking, mentoring, and collaboration opportunities can advance bioethics education and research in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
